Oreo Melted Snowman Cookies
These Melted Snowman Cookies ended up being much easier than I expected. I wanted to make something that was quick and easy but still could be considered fun Christmas Cookies you could make with the kids too. Have fun with the kids and create memories in the kitchen.

And, you can even make them for an upcoming holiday event. These little Melted Snowman Cookies might be quick and easy but they are definitely not lacking the love that comes along with making holiday food for family, friends and yes of course for Santa.
All you need to create the Melted Snowman Cookies is Oreos, sprinkles and cookie icing or candy melts. I used cookie icing but from past experience I will tell you I prefer Oreos with candy melts. Something about the candy melts, they just complement the Oreos so well.
They are still good with cookie icing, but in my opinion candy melts are the way to go. If you decide to go with candy melts just use a piping bag and a small tip to apply to the cookie.
I’m not going to bore you with a huge long post that lingers on and on. Happy Holidays I hope you and your loved ones enjoy these Oreo Melted Snowman Cookies or at least find some inspiration to create something festive of your own.
- Oreo cookies
- 2 tube cookie icing or 1 bag of candy melts (if you want to make the entire box of Oreo cookies)
- Sprinkles (I used small black sprinkles for the eyes, long brown ones for the arms, silver round sprinkles for the buttons and long orange sprinkles for the nose.
- 1 small bag mini Reese Cups
Lay out a piece of parchment paper.
Spread cookie icing on the top of the Oreo cookie so it looks like a puddle of snow melted.
While the cookie icing is still wet.
Cut the mini Reese in half and lay the cut side down on top of the Oreo cookie.
Using two black sprinkles or something edible, place the eyes under the hat. Remember they don't have to be perfect, it's a melted snowman.
Using a long orange sprinkle, place the nose under the eyes. Doesn't have to be perfect.
Using two long brown sprinkles, place one on each side for the arms.
Using three or so round sprinkles, place the buttons toward the bottom of the snowman. Remember your snowman is melting so it doesn't have to be perfect just in the general area.
Allow cookies icing to dry for a few hours. Enjoy!
You can also use candy melts rather than cookie icing. I used cookie icing, but I'll be honest I prefer Oreo's with candy melts. Either way they turn out great, I just think the candy melts complement the Oreo much better in my opinion.
